The goal of the North Central Health District is optimal health for all Georgians. We strive to obtain this goal through preventing disease, promoting health and protecting communities against health threats. The North Central Health District is part of the Georgia Department of Public Health and serves thirteen counties in Central Georgia: Baldwin, Bibb, Crawford, Hancock, Houston, Jasper, Jones, Monroe, Peach, Putnam, Twiggs, Washington, and Wilkinson.
The North Central Health District prevents disease through immunization clinics, by investigating disease outbreaks, managing treatment of patients with tuberculosis, screening pregnant women for treatable and preventable diseases, and educating communities to prevent diseases like HIV.
The North Central Health District promotes health by educating communities about healthy habits like good nutrition and exercise, empowering adolescents to make healthy choices, checking senior citizens’ blood pressure, encouraging men and women to be screened for cancer, and providing prenatal care to pregnant women.
The North Central Health District protects the health of communities by inspecting restaurants for safety and cleanliness, responding swiftly to health threats from natural disasters and terrorist attacks, enforcing health and safety regulations, and managing protection against West Nile virus, SARS, and pandemic flu.
Each of the 13 counties within the North Central Health District has a Health Department that is governed by a County Board of Health. The Board of Health is made up of designated community leaders. The Executive Director of each County Board of Health is the District Health Director.
Each Health Department offers a number of programs and services for the residents of the county. Please select a county from the drop down list at the left to see more information about your local County Health Department.
